Style Report Professional includes a reporting engine, API, and WYSIWYG, scriptable, professional authoring environment. The software allows IT professionals to create sophisticated production reports that can be deployed for server based, or desktop based applications. The small footprint and 100% Java architecture makes it an ideal solution for embedded reporting. Based upon XML, JavaScript, and other open standards technology the reporting application allows developers to fully leverage existing skills. Style Report also includes a robust data access engine based on InetSoft's patent-pending Data Block™ technology, which enables direct access to disparate data sources and flexible, powerful data transformation such as the unique ability of end-user defined data mashup.

"We selected InetSoft's Style Report Professional for a time-tested, dependable publishing engine and a powerful, yet easy-to-use report designer that would save resources associated with internal development of publishing capabilities and client customization requests," offers Craig Christiansen, President-Technology at FPX. "We were looking for a Java-based publishing solution that could be easily integrated with our own," continues Mr. Christiansen. "We have been pleased with deployment, and the reporting software's part in our ability to help companies of all sizes realize cost reduction and revenue acceleration associated with critical configuration and accurate quoting solutions."

"Making our business reporting software very integration-ready is central to our strategy," comments Mark Flaherty, Vice President of Marketing at InetSoft. "While we also provide business intelligence software that enables dashboard, visual analysis, and reporting with a user-friendly Web 2.0 interface, we have specialized in providing our back-end data access, publishing and visualization technologies to OEMs such as FPX who require high performance, multiple integration points, and a high degree of programmatic control."
